In early May I planted 3 Lilium Regale in separate pots. One is absolutely beautiful with 9 strongly scented blooms. The other two oh dear! twisted brown tipped leaves, flowers minute and twisted or nonexistent. Should I cut them down now? Are they likely to bloom as normal next year? I've grown lilies for quite a few years and never had this problem before.
Have you dug them out to check the bulbs? Sounds like a disease to me in which case you need to get rid of them so they don't infect the good one. Only other possibility is slug damage to the bulb.
